Too Much, Too Fast

2017-01-12T11:57:02+00:00

A few years ago, a father brought his teenage son into my office for a conversation.  Yehuda was in Yeshiva out of town and he was class 3 obese.  At age 16, his parents were rightfully concerned about his well-being.  If at this age he was this heavy, with a 40+ BMI, what was going [...]

Every year in the United States, there is something called The Conference Board Job Satisfaction survey.  Using a series of questions about the workplace, they determine something called job satisfaction.  In plain English, do you like your job?  Roughly half of Americans like going to work each day, but the other side of this is [...]

2017-01-12T11:43:46+00:00

I hope the title of his article doesn’t have you thinking that I have found some great shortcut to weight loss.  There isn’t one.  We still don’t have a proven and safe medication, nor do we even have a surgical procedure that we are absolutely sure is safe or even effective in the long-term.  As [...]

Are You Eating Enough?

2017-01-19T12:51:28+00:00

It makes sense—just eat less and you will lose weight. That is what Davida and Gittel, thought. Both in their mid to late 40’s they came to me for consultations on weight loss several years ago.  Both were on calorie restricted programs and were exercising to some extent and both were very frustrated as all [...]

As both a wellness coach and personal trainer, one thing I am NOT trying to do is help people achieve perfection in any particular area.  What I am trying to do, is help people make improvements in their lifestyle habits in order to bring about a healthier quality of life. Getting everyone to be an [...]

Critical Updates

Today I would advise him differently and make sure he had enough healthy fats in the diet—not to go high [...]
